Texas Rangers Vs. Seattle Mariners: Saturday Preview, TV Schedule And More

Two aces will face off against each other on Saturday night in Seattle, as Yu Darvish and the Texas Rangers continue a three-game series against Felix Hernandez and the Seattle Mariners.

Derek Holland notched the win on Friday night, in Texas' 3-2 win over Seattle. Joe Nathan was shaky, giving up two runs in the ninth on three hits and a walk, but managed to shut the door and preserve Holland's sixth victory of the year.

Darvish will be looking for his 11th win of the season. He last started on July 1, when he pitched seven strong innings against the Oakland Athletics, striking out 11 while giving up three runs. Darvish, though, was hung with the loss in that game.

To date, Darvish is 10-5, with a 3.59 ERA, .227 BAA and 1.36 WHIP. He has struck out 117 in 102 and 2/3 innings, while walking 53.

Texas' offense might have a tough time scratching together runs, as they'll face off against Felix Hernandez. Hernandez is 6-5 on the year, with a 3.13 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and .250 BAA. He's struck out 128 in 123 and 2/3 innings on the year.

First pitch is scheduled for 8:10 p.m. CT. Televised coverage can be found on FOX Sports Southwest.
